it was good to see president clinton golfing with president obama today because president clinton was able to do this. he was able to triang late in his second term. he was in there to build legacy and i think that's something that president obama has got to take into store and i hope he continues to get advice from president clinton. >> good point. because it goes on speaking of former presidents, because george w. bush got re-elected in 2004 and he and the republicans were prepared to implement the agenda he ran on, elections of consequences. remember that famous soundbyte? obama ran on higher taxes for the wealthy and won. lz, shouldn't he be making the same argument? that is what he ran on. >> absolutely. you know what i find interesting, if you look at the statistics, many of the blue states that supported president obama are some of the richest states in the country. and so not only did you have him defeat romney pretty handedly in the electoral college, but people willing to sacrifice their own money to make sure that president obama, his policies made it to the white house. you kno
slow release. >>> one of the big decisions president obama must make is who will replace secretary of state hillary clinton. john kerry's name is floating around. there's talk of michael bloomberg or bill clinton. dana millbank is a "washington post" columnist. the president is standing firm by rice. we remember the stern words he gave against the senators who were targeting her. take a listen. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> since then a couple of other senators besides mccain and graham have spoken out saying rice misled the public. when the american ambassador and three others were killed in the attack in september. the real question here is can she be confirmed? not just because of benghazi but because of her whole body of work as the united nations ambassador? >> well, she does have an unusually large number of enemies on capitol hill because of things that have happened in the past, certainly john mccain b
illness. it's an example of how you can form a friendship at these meetings. bill clinton had beat the sitting president, george herber walker bush, and they met similar to the way romney and obama are now, and now clinton and 41 are dear, close friends and have done many constructive things together around the world. i think, by and large, these meetings, the luncheon today, will be about optics. it's the photo ops. it's a chance to say america is united. there may be an opportunity here for mitt romney to come out and talk about the fiscal cliff or saying we must avoid falling off it towards something that could be helpful to the white house in the end. i remember back in 2008 it was john mccain that met with president obama. they met in his office in chicago. not at the white house. it seemed like that was the beginning, potentially of two leaders really working together. we have since seen that deteriorate. >> we can't judge personal kem tri. i think barack obama has more at stake in this lunch in the end than mitt romney. if obama can get romney to say something positive about
's an embarrassment to the obama administration? you had secretary clinton who warned abbas not to do this. >> the u.s. isn't going to break with israel. we both know that. right or wrong. the u.s. isn't going to break with israel, and so they were there to support them, and we expected that. at the same time there has to be a long, hard think about how to push this process forward. a two-state solution. >> all right. jim clancy, thank you. appreciate it. >>> we have breaking news. an explosion just outside rocking social security administration building. this is in casa grande, arizona. it's halfway between phoenix and tucson, arizona. you're looking at pictures. this is from our affiliate kpho. we are told that this blast was caused by a device that actually detonated at the rear of this building. that is according to the local police department. it happened around 8:15 in the morning. you're taking a look at some of the aerials here around this building. this is a building that actually houses many and several other downtown businesses. we understand that those businesses have been evacuated. now
. you talked about presidents from obama to george w. bush, bill clinton, all objecting to settlement on that spot and getting his assurances from israel that it wouldn't be built on, so why now? tough talking? election coming up? what happened in the u.n.? what's the feeling there? >> well, certainly the israelis have made no secret of the fact that this is a direct punitive measure for what happened at the u.n. last thursday where, of course, the palestinians managed get an upgraded status there in the u.n. general assembly going to nonmember observer state. of course, the word state there is the operative one for the palestinians. the palestinians now say they do, in fact, have a state which is a taertory that is defined as the west bank, gaza, and east jerusalem. so, therefore, the palestinians are saying that this obviously would make the implementation of this state all but impossible because they say it would be impossible for them to even reach their capital that they want to have, which is, of course, east jerusalem. this is certainly a measure that's cause aing lot of intern
is looking at that has led to some of these warnings from president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton. the question, of course, is what is the administration to do now? suzanne. >> how are people reacting to this news, the fact that you've got the defense secretary now what it seems to be getting closer to some of the statements we have seen about real concern over the possibility of these chemical weapons? >> yeah. i think that's exactly the point. secretary panetta going on to say, as others have, but saying it very emphatically just a few moments ago, that assad needs to know there will be consequences if he decides to use those chemical weapons against his own people, and, of course, that's as much a message to assad, to iran, which is heavily involved in syria right now, and also, to the middle east dawas in the region. turkey, israel, majoritiedan, as well as lebanon that borders syria and are very concerned about this prospect. what you are seeing really is the rhetoric, the concern, the latest intelligence, and that this is now becoming a regional concern throughout th
obama has not announced his nominee yet, but miss rice and mr. kerry are considered high on the president's list of possible replacements for hillary clinton who has said that she is not staying on for the president's second term. cnn's elise labott is at the state department to talk about it. do a comparison for us, off the bat. pros and cons for the top diplomatic post. the halls of the state department are buzzing with potential new secretary of state. both would make a strong candidate. susan rice, for instance, one of president obama's closest advisers. she was his principal foreign policy adviser during his first campaign and helped shape his world view. they have a similar world view. all of this signifies susan rice would be influential when she goes to speak to diplomats around the world and world leaders and also in formulating foreign policy, which is very good for the state department. on the downside, you see what's happening with the benghazi affair. she's likely to have a bruising confirmation process. some republican senators said they might hold up her no
